FOUNDED 1974

Canterbury Christian school honors the heritage of its founders, Rev. & Mrs. Norm Milbank as it continues to provide a faithful, biblical education to the many students who have passed through its doors. We wish to provide a legacy that includes honoring God and keeping His commandments.

Our small class size guarantees quality student and teacher interaction. Our teachers continue to enhance their skills as educators, many of them having decades of experience with grammar school-aged children.

  • Training Christian leaders through our “Raise The Standard” student government program.
  • Our 5th and 6th Grade Handbells Teams participating in the Bay Area School Handbell Festival at All Saints School in Hayward, California.
